    • Free Form!

      I agree with others in saying that I would like a free form haiku page/option as well as the 5-7-5. As is believed by most English Haiku writers, 17 syllables in English conveys far more than in Japanese. In fact, some say that 11 English syllables is the way to go. Regardless, I'd say a free form haiku option would be best. You could even create two pages, one for 5-7-5 haikus and one for free form. Still, lovin' the site!

      Thanks guys,
      Brandon

      • I would like an easy way to print Journal

        I think a way to be able to print one's own Journal would be nice. In this way it could be sent or saved.. or shared,, I've tried by pages but that can eat up a lot of time and paper...

        • Renka (linked verse option)

          I would like to see a Linked verse option, where instead of a rigid Haiku system, there is a Haiku of 5-7-5 syllables followed by a verse of 7-7, continued in a 5-7-5 verse etc. repeating until there is a consensus of the end of the linked verse.

            Interesting idea. I think this would need to work with the existing ‘Conversations’, or be similar. Who is responsible for deciding that the poem is done? Can anyone continue once one is started?

          • Matthu the counters not picking up hyphens in first or 2nd line again in its count ~ a fix ?

            this is pretty important for my writing ~ i use it a great deal as a specific mark ~ can this be added again into the counters abilities? Thanks so much

            • Make it easier to share with Social networks?

              i would like it if i could easily click a button, and bam all my Facebook friends could see into my head through my haiku, and maybe an app too, for when i'm on the go?

                  • install a manual over-ride for syllable glitches in system

                    re. tried to use tule, as in tule fog...the word as well as the pronunciation aren't recognized...probably a local term ...Wikipedia has it ...It's pronounced " too lee" 2 syllables not "tool"...minor gripe ...love your site.

                      We’ve had this feature in mind since day #1. The difficult part is moderating the words that people add, and if two authors disagree on a syllable count, how that gets resolved.

                      Since our user base is currently small and trustworthy, we can start with something simple until the system is abused.

                    • what a waste of time! i wrote an haiku about the multicolored birds to start here, and it refused to post, and now the picture is gone.

                      my idea? don't waste people's time who come here to write. now i have an haiku and no place to share it.

                      • text download works great.... THANK YOU

                        The text download was a great solution and it is comforting to have haiku efforts saved...
